Thanksgiving service

We offer a service of thanksgiving, for the safe arrival of a new life into a family or for the arrival of a little one after adoption. Sometimes this is a meaningful alternative for those who feel it not appropriate to make a commitment of faith on behalf of their child. It may an opportunity to offer thanks for a very young baby, before waiting until they are a little bigger for a big family celebration of baptism.

Many people find this a really good alternative if one partner is uncomfortable about making baptism. It can be especially helpful in families of more than one faith.

If you would like to discuss a service of thanksgiving please contact our vicar Rev Preb Sharon Crossman 01278 789290 or email
